In the approach of our trip were the considerations what we want to see on our world trip everything. Which countries we want to travel around? Which places we want to visit? Where we want to remain longer? How is the political situation on site? Can I enter in a country generally?
These considerations at the back of our mind we slowly developed a route for our planned world trip.
World trip our planned route
We agreed very fast that we would not like to travel around North America and Australia. These areas will not attract us. Or in other words, we can visit these regions still later. The dynamism of changes in these regions is rather slow compared to South America, Asia and Africa.
Our trip around the world by the car – a Steyr 680 – should begin in March, 2014 enough time to continue the plannings. We are aware that the planned route and the planned time is flexible and will be changed on the basis of changes of the political situation, the weather, our experiences on site and other influence.
